I just wanted to let everyone know I have been in communication with the staff at the Community Center to see how we can go about moving forward with our planned Summer Concert Season. Here is the planned schedule which may be subject to change:
5/24 - Rehearsal
5/31 - Rehearsal
6/3 - Performance
6/7 - Rehearsal
6/14 - Rehearsal
6/18 - Performance
6/21 - Rehearsal
6/28 - Rehearsal
7/1 - Performance
7/5 - Rehearsal
7/8 - Performance
With the current city ordinances, we will not be able to rehearse or perform inside the Community Center due to the limited number of people allowed on stage (maximum of 30). This could change by May 24th, but we will not know until we get closer to the date.
In the meantime, we are considering outdoor rehearsals and concerts. It is possible we can rehearse in the street (Duncan) behind the stage. The city would set up road barricades on that block. At that time of day, that area should be in the shade, we would have easy access to equipment, and plenty of room to social distance. We have several options for outdoor performance venues (Block 34, Stillwater Library Lawn, etc.). I know rehearsing/performing outdoors is not ideal, but hopefully this would allow us to start making music together again.
That's all for now. I just wanted to make everyone aware there is a plan for a Summer Season. Hopefully, we can make it happen! I hope you are all doing well. Be looking for an email from me in May to update you on the plan!
In the meantime, dust off those horns and sticks!

Due to the current situation with Covid-19 and the City of Stillwater Community Center being closed until further notice, rehearsals and performances may be subject to postponement and/or cancellation.
